The Narrator

Kaitlin Sullivan is an animation producer-in-progress from the New York area. She graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2012 with a BFA in feature animation, and a years long passion for production. With a strong artistic background and a Tetris-like mindset for prioritizing tasks, Kaitlin has a zeal for working with her team to produce quality animation.

She is the production manager of Moon Animate Make-Up, a crowdsourced, non-profit animation collaboration she spearheaded by herself. Over ten months, she personally recruited and managed almost three hundred animators to re-animate an episode of Sailor Moon, shot-by-shot in each artist's personal style. The result was a twenty-three minute parody episode that received over one million views its first week, overwhelming positive feedback, and extensive press coverage. She has also worked in production for HouseSpecial, Blue Sky Studios, Titmouse Inc, and NBC TV.

Kaitlin's ambitions involve taking advantage of technology in how we create and communicate to open up more possibilities for where artists can live and work, since the software used to create animation are more readily available to consumers.

When she isn't mulling over her projects-in-progress, she can usually be found at her local bakery with black coffee and a donut. Other interests include the opera, epidemiology, and nail polish. She lives, works, and revels in Portland.
